Getting shelved

Someone passed along This WorldMag Article that wonders...Does WORLD belong on the periodical shelves of public libraries and the libraries of public universities?
It seems Joel Belz is having some trouble getting WORLD into his local library, and someone else had the same trouble at the state university where she is an alumna.

"Does WORLD belong on the periodical shelves of public libraries and the libraries of public universities? That is, of course, not my job to determine. But just because these institutions are public, it seems altogether appropriate to ask those in charge to make public what their policies and criteria are for making such decisions."
